We have 2 sites, 1 in the UK, 1 in the USA, with 2 separate LANS, and 2 separate domains.
They are however linked by a VPN tunnel, but both have their own Active Domains.
We have 1 SharePoint site at the UK location.
We need to allow a USA user access to the UK SharePoint site.
I have therefore added a new user to our UK AD.
I can login to the SharePoint site from the UK with these new credentials, but when the user on the USA LAN tries, her laptop (Windows 7) switches the login username domain to her own domain.
UK domain : OUR-COMPANY
USA domain : OUR-COMPANY_USA
The user should be logging in as :
Although she types this into her laptop in the Windows Security dialogue box,
underneath the username is still keeps
DOMAIN : OUR-COMPANY_USA
I'm assuming because she is on the OUR-COMPANY_USA domain, and the domains are so similar, that Windows auto-fills the domain and assumes it to be OUR-COMPANY_USA.
Is there a way of forcing it to OUR-COMPANY domain in these circumstances?
